Configuring automation of printer mapping and application certificates

Hi

What's the best way to configure automatic printer mapping in citrix vdi.I.e if I move from third floor to fifth floor and login I should get all fifth floor subnet printers readily available to me.

Also I have few web applications who has a user specific certificate to be registered...how can I achieve this using UPM...I am using pooled vdi

For printing, session printer policies based on the filters of your choosing will give the dynamic user experience you are looking for based on user connection parameters etc.  More info here:  http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/xendesktop-7/cds-print-provision-wrapper.html


For the cert question, you would need to use Microsoft Credential Roaming:

Here is how to configure w/ UPM:

Good luck, sound like fun projects :)

Moving, do you have DCs on the various floors such or are you looking at a login script that maps printers based on THE IP segment that it gets?

Does the user move with their computer or there are systems ready to use?

Citrix originally called this Proximity Printing, meaning that the IP address was used to determine the printers in that area.  The problem is when you have wireless doling out DHCP addresses that extends between floors or where users are at the edge of wireless access point connectivity; at that point, IP addressing isn't an exact science and it's like calling 911 when you're on a county line.  

Unless you have clear delineation of IP addressing from wireless access points, proximity printing won't work for you.
